A belated welcome!Edit

Sorry for the belated welcome, but the cookies are still warm!  

Here's wishing you a belated welcome to Wikipedia, Scribblednote. I see that you've already been around a while and wanted to thank you for your contributions. Though you seem to have been successful in finding your way around, you may benefit from following some of the links below, which help editors get the most out of Wikipedia:

Also, when you post on talk pages you should sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~); that should automatically produce your username and the date after your post.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wikipedian! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a message on my talk page, consult Wikipedia:Questions, or place {{helpme}} on your talk page and ask your question there.

Again, welcome! Cheers,

May 2012Edit


Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to make constructive contributions to Wikipedia, but at least one of your recent edits, such as the one you made to General Education Academy, did not appear to be constructive and has been automatically reverted (undone) by an automated computer program called ClueBot NG.

  • Please use the sandbox for any test edits you would like to make, and take a look at the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Note that human editors do monitor recent changes to Wikipedia articles, and administrators have the ability to block users from editing if they repeatedly engage in vandalism.
  • ClueBot NG makes very few mistakes, but it does happen. If you believe the change you made should not have been considered as unconstructive, please read about it, report it here, remove this warning from your talk page, and then make the edit again.
  • If you need help, please see our help pages, and if you can't find what you are looking for there, please feel free to place "{{helpme}}" on your talk page and someone will drop by to help.
  • The following is the log entry regarding this warning: General Education Academy was changed by Scribblednote (u) (t) ANN scored at 0.882814 on 2012-05-12T06:38:20+00:00 . Thank you. ClueBot NG (talk) 06:38, 12 May 2012 (UTC)

  Please do not add unreferenced or poorly referenced information, especially if controversial, to articles or any other page on Wikipedia about living persons, as you did to Chetan Bhagat. Thank you. Minima© (talk) 06:39, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

  Please stop your disruptive editing. If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Chetan Bhagat, you may be blocked from editing. The reverted edit can be found here. ♥ Solarra ♥ ♪ Talk ♪ ߷ ♀ Contribs ♀ 06:45, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

You should try to talk to him/them or just bring it to the Administrators' Noticeboard. Here's the link: Administrators' Noticeboard. But be sure to pick the right category.

Your submission at Articles for creationEdit

Thank you for your recent submission to Articles for Creation. Your article submission has been reviewed. Unfortunately, it has not been accepted at this time. Please view your submission to see the comments left by the reviewer. You are welcome to edit the submission to address the issues raised, and resubmit once you feel they have been resolved.

In response to your feedbackEdit

Note that to be able to move pages yourself, you must be logged in and you must have an autoconfirmed account (i.e. you must have had the account for four days and made at least ten article edits with it). Moreover the move will fail if a page already exists at the target name, unless it is simply a redirect to the present name that has never been modified (check the edit history).

The move option in the Vector skin appears when you move your mouse cursor over the small drop-down menu, shown here. (Other users may not have the "TW", which is the optional gadget, twinkle).

The steps for moving a page are as follows:

  1. With the page to be moved displayed, choose the "move" option near the top of the page. In the default Vector skin, this is in a drop-down menu to the right of the screen, after "History" and the "Watchlist" star (see picture). In the Monobook skin, it is a tab at the top. You'll be asked for a new name for the page, and given the option to also move the page's talk page (this box should usually be left checked). Complete the "Reason for move" field (which is like an edit summary). Although filling out the "Reason" field isn't required, you should state a reason for the page move.
    A common example: moving a userspace draft into place. The intended article name is entered without any prefixes.
  2. When ready, click the move button and, if successful, the page will be renamed to the new title. The old title will become a redirect page, so any links to the old title will still go to the new page. However, note that double redirects (pages that redirect to the original page), will not automatically follow to the new page, so you will have to refer them manually (as explained at How to fix a double redirect and Checking for double redirects). However, if you're an administrator, you can move pages without leaving a redirect behind.
  3. After a successful page move, a page looking like this will be shown: MediaWiki:Movepage-moved.
  4. Open the what-links-here for that page (there may be a shortcut link on the page-moved summary screen to let you do this, but the what-links-here link will in any case be in the toolbox, which is near the bottom of the sidebar unless you've customized your skin away from the default Vector).
  5. In the section of that page marked filters, click on the button labeled "Hide links". This will result in the page only showing redirects to the prior name. Open each of the redirect pages (best to do so in new tabs), click edit this page for each one, and change their target to the name of the page to which you have moved the page. Though this is an important cleanup step, if you miss some, they will normally be fixed by a bot shortly afterwards.
  6. If there are more than 50 redirects listed (rare) on the "what links here" page, don't forget to navigate to all parts of the list using the "next 50" or other links available.
  7. Since the article name is reflected in the lead section, that section may need to be updated to be consistent with the new name.
  8. If you moved an article which contains any non-free content (such as images or sound clips), you will need to edit the files' own Wikipedia page, changing the non-free use rationale to refer to the new article title. This is to ensure continued compliance with the non-free content criteria (part 10c), which if not followed, may result in the file's speedy deletion.

Once the page has been moved, this will be recorded in the Move Log and a "move has succeeded" message will be displayed.

Editing problemsEdit

Hello, Scribblednote. I am here because I have been checking a report about you at "Administrator intervention against vandalism". Having looked at your editing history, I think it is probably a mistake to call it "vandalism", but there are some problems with your editing, and I thought it might help to point some of them out.

You have repeatedly added content without giving any source for it, as mentioned above. Particularly for anything which may be controversial, it is essential to provide sources.

You have repeatedly removed content from articles without any explanation. If you think that there is a good reason for removing content, you must explain what the reason is. You can give a brief explanation in the box labelled "Edit summary" just below the area in which you edit the page. If you need to give a longer explanation than can be fitted in an edit summary, or if there is a need to discuss the reason with other editors, you can give an explanation on the article's talk page.

Some of your editing has seemed like promotion or advertising, which is against Wikipedia's policy. This was so, for example, in this editing, which also suffered from being unsourced, and the same applies to this editing. Wikipedia is not a medium for telling people where they can go to but books or anything else. JamesBWatson (talk) 10:57, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for your message on my talk page. I have replied there. JamesBWatson (talk) 12:13, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

In response to your feedbackEdit

Not really, there are somethings which are ambiguous, but there are others which are very plainly vandalism.

Wikipedia Help SurveyEdit

Hi there, my name's Peter Coombe and I'm a Wikimedia Community Fellow working on a project to improve Wikipedia's help system. At the moment I'm trying to learn more about how people use and find the current help pages. If you could help by filling out this brief survey about your experiences, I'd be very grateful. It should take less than 10 minutes, and your responses will not be tied to your username in any way.

Thank you for your time,
